In Memory of Our Beloved...



Rudi came to us at 4 1/2 months after having been in three pet stores since the age of 5 1/2 weeks.  He made up for the difficulty of his early life by teaching us that "Every Day is A Gift"!  Each morning to him was the best yet.  He loved to give smooches and sing; loved to hike, camp, run in the park or stalk his Mandy friend on the beach.  After she passed, he was very sad, but renewed his life by lovingly and gently raising a new puppy at age 10.  He never slowed down or stopped smelling the roses.  Even after dislocating his shoulder 3 times and no longer being able to run freely, he still would shout for joy as he was carried on the family walks.  Over his 19 year, 5 month life, he made a lot of friends and we are greatful to all that remembered him in his passing.  We would like to thank the staff at Greenlake Animal Hospital for helping us honor our little friend.  We love you, Roo!
